LEICHHARDT teenager Matthew Frohmuller played well above his expectations to secure state selection at the recent Greg Norman Golf Foundation Masters.

Matthew, 14, was one of eight juniors from the Moreton District team that qualified to play on Clive Palmer's resort courses on the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.

Matthew's first round of one under par 71 at Palmer Colonial Resort was good enough for the young talent to hold a two-shot lead in the under 15 division.

He was also tied second overall after the first day of play.

Two rounds of 77 kept Matthew inside the top six heading into the last round.

Playing the final round with defending champion Hugo Dennis from France, Matt again played solid golf to win the under-15 Nett Championship.

At the awards ceremony attended by Norman's parents and his early coach Charlie Earp, Matthew was named in the Queensland State of Origin team to take on NSW next month at Newcastle Golf Club.

Moreton District's under-13 boys Ben Stieler and Louis Dobbelar, from Brookwater, and Hattonvale's Jed Morgan all finished inside the top 15.

Sandy Gallop's under-13 girl Lauren Ziebarth competed in her first masters tournament and played consistently.

Sandy Gallop also had Tahlia Condon (under 15s) and Kiara Frohmuller (under 17s) represented, along with Laidley-based Melissa Littlejohns (under 15s).

"The competition for these girls was full of incredibly talented players,'' Moreton District junior co-ordinator Craig Frohmuller said.

"A number of the field shot scores of up to five under off the stick, which was better than most of the professional golfers that played in the Australian PGA Championships on the same Palmer Coolum Resort course two days before.

The field included players from all over Australia and South East Asia and as far away as France.

Leading regional players like the Moreton District representatives are contesting the annual Sandy Gallop Junior Christmas Classic on Sunday.

Matt won last year's event.

He is a member of Sandy Gallop's open men's team and has been a junior champion in Moreton District, City of Ipswich, Sandy Gallop and Coal City tournaments.

Sunday's tournament at Sandy Gallop Golf Club is being run as an 18 hole stroke event.There is also a pee wee nine hole division for juniors who have not attained an AGU handicap, or who are starting out in golf.

Nominations close today.
